Stitch-School is co-founded by Melanie Bowles and Aimee Betts whose aim is to provide professional and inspirational guidence to reconnect to the benefits of hand embroidery.
Stitch-School creates live events and workshops based around a large communual embroidery frame called ‘The Supper Cloth’. Recent events have taken place in the River Rooms with Makerversity, Somerset House and Squires Architect, Brixton as part of London Design Festival.
The Supper Cloth aims to bring people together offering a chance to get away from mobile devices and embrace the resurgence of hand embroidery. The digital printed linen stretched on the table provides a base to practice and focus stitching as well as encouraging conversation through communual making and slow stitching as an antidote to modern life.
Live events are shared through social media to build online communities and support. Follow us @stitch_school.
